6 Ridiculous Things Pat Roberston Has Said About Gay People

  • 2 of 2

4. Christians Will Go to Jail for Trying to Save Gays with Their Love

When Robertson isn’t directly attacking the humanity of gay people themselves, he implies that laws that are designed to promote equality and equal treatment of LGBTs make Christians into criminals.

During a July 2013 broadcast, he bemoaned how the USA is repeatedly passing laws that make it harder to discriminate against LGBTs, saying:

“If you see somebody who is not going to go to Heaven and you really love him you want to do what it takes to get him into Heaven, if you don’t care about him you let him go to Hell,” Robertson continued. “We are a people who love and yet now your love is going to put you in jail because the people who are going to Hell feel their lifestyle—think, ‘well, we want to be affirmed.’”

Needless to say there is no law on the books that would condemn a Christian to jail time for expressing their love or even simply expressing their disapproval of homosexuality.

 

5. God is Going to Destroy America Because Gays Are Marrying!

When New York legalized marriage equality in 2011, many religious conservatives were noted for overreacting — just a tad — with dire predictions that this would mean the end of America, nay, the world! Chief among them was Robertson who offered this oft used canard:

“There’s never been a civilization ever in history that has embraced homosexuality and turned away from traditional fidelity, traditional marriage, traditional child-rearing, and has survived… we’re heading [the way of Sodom] as a nation.”

I thought Canada was doing fairly well, actually.

 

6. Gays Are Destroying the Boy Scouts for “A Few Kids Who Want to do Sex with Each Other”

“Do sex.” That’s the now infamous phrase Pat Robertson used while condemning the Boy Scout’s new policy allowing openly gay scouts into the fold. Now, Robertson had warned all along that something catastrophic was on the horizon should the Scouts go down this path, saying that ending the gay ban would enable “predators” and “pedophiles” access to young kids. Little did we all know it would be as bad as this:

“Two percent deciding what the rest of us does and they are willing to destroy it. Hollywood and the so-called liberal media has jumped on board that this is the new civil rights, well I don’t think so. [It] breaks your heart [to see the Boy Scouts] torn up in order to accommodate a few kids who want to do sex with each other. It just boggles the mind.”

It does indeed.

Fully entitled to freedom of speech as well as freedom of association, the same as the LBGT group, in screaming their own from every conceivable devise imaginable.
Have not seen the message pushed in "skywriting" yet, but certainly every other advertising gadget has been overloaded with it.
Harry you are correct this crazy old bastard is entitled to say what he will and you are certainly free to believe whatever you wish but if you believe ANYTHING this addled old man utters then I have to doubt the sanity of you both because just like you I too may believe whatever I wish.

It wouldn't surprise me one bit, if the world were to find out that Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh shared the same genetic make up of a "ignoranus". Additionally, both are total idiots who simply love to hear themselves talk. Don and I CAN! :-))
